No Crutches

No Crutches

 It has been almost six weeks since my surgery to repair a ruptured achilles. I am hoping in the next two weeks to be able to put some weight on my left leg again. I pray in time I will walk and yes, eventually run again.

What have I learned during this process?

First observation, I am not any more patient – ha!   But I have experienced that life is definitely easier and more enjoyable WITHOUT crutches.

It is interesting that throughout my life people have told me that, “Christianity is just a crutch.” That my faith in Jesus is just a “crutch” that helps me get through life’s journey. But I have learned that Jesus is not a “crutch” for my journey — Jesus is the journey!!! Everything else in this life is just a crutch.

Running with Him,

Pastor Kurt
